Sandra Bullock plays opposite George Clooney in this one. She is Dr. Ryan Stone, who is on her first shuttle mission, and he is a veteran astronaut named Matt Kowalski, who is on his final mission. It seems like people either love this movie or hate it! I would have to say I’m in the “love it” category. OK, so it wasn’t the most technically accurate space film or even that believable in a lot of areas, but I felt it was more about the characters and what they represented than trying to be the greatest space film of all time. It was meant to make you think about life and what matters and overcoming adversity. After a disaster strikes the shuttle, Stone basically finds herself in an almost unsurvivable situation and has to summon every ounce of will and courage she can to try to make it out. There was a lot of hype when this movie was released, but it really does seem like one of those movies that can “affect” you if you let it. I think this one is going stick with me for awhile - that's for sure.
